Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC has announced the hiring of Richard Thorpe as its sales channel leader focused on distributed retail, one of several key channel strategies for the company this year. As he implements his strategy, Thorpe will report directly to Reverse Mortgage Funding President David Peskin.
“This will be a key initiative for us,” said Peskin. “Richard is a great hire for us and he adds another strong leader as we continue to grow. He brings with him 23 years in the mortgage industry, with the last nine in the reverse mortgage space, so he understands this business extremely well and has a strong record of success.”
Prior to joining Reverse Mortgage Funding, Thorpe was vice president of the East Coast at Security One Lending. Prior to that, he was the northeast area sales manager for MetLife's Reverse Mortgage division. Previously, Thorpe served as the national sales manager at EverBank Reverse Mortgage.
“I’m looking forward to working with the best loan officers in the reverse mortgage industry and building a world class team at RMF,” said Thorpe.
